Re: Noise Cancelling 700 Firmware Update - 1.7.0 - September 14th 2020
I must be one of the few, but this update improved things for me for both multi-point connections and stuttering. To be fair, right after updating I still had the issue where my Macbook Pro always showed as the active stream and therefore never switched to my Android Pixel 3. I then took the following steps which have fixed most of my issues.
- Held power button on headphones until the "Bluetooth device list cleared" announcement (Hold for 10 seconds or so)
- Remove/forget/disconnect headphones on each device
- Uninstall Bose Music app and reinstall
- Pair each device one by one
I had tried step 1, 2, and 4 multiple times with seemingly no difference so I think step 3 was crucial in fixing most of my problems.
Switching between my Macbook and Pixel 3 is not perfect and my Macbook still seems to take priority on first startup, but once I play some music once on my Macbook, I am then able to pause that and then play something on my Pixel and it will switch right over. I still get stuttering on the Macbook occasionally, but it seems better. No stuttering whatsoever on my Pixel even with both devices connected.
I have also tried the following combinations and things work as expected (though sometimes still require a little coaxing):
- Pixel 3 & Macbook Pro
- iPhone 6 & Macbook Pro
- Pixel 3 & Windows 10
- iPhone 6 & Windows 10
I will say though that any stuttering or stubbornness seems to come from the Macbook than anything else. The bluetooth stacks on Android, Windows, iOS, and Macbook OS are all different most likely and I would hazard a guess to say that the headphones aren't 100% happy with connecting to different devices.
